Assassin’s Creed Rogue - The Novel - Chapter 10

AN: Chapter 10 already? Oh my goodness. Thank you to everyone who has liked or reblogged this story. Knowing you’re enjoying it really makes it worthwhile.

26th July 1757

Now that I had been given another taste of life on the ocean, this time as captain of my own ship, I was itching to get back out there, but to my disappointment, Achilles did not immediately assign me and Liam a new task for the Morrigan. Instead my men were given extended shore leave, many of them taking off to New York for a few days as I waited for Achilles or Liam to give me my next mission.

The others made sure that I kept up my training, although I wasn’t sure what else they had left to teach me. Sure, I wasn’t as good a sharpshooter as Liam, or as good at sneaking up behind people as Hope, but surely time and practise would see that change.

Shay: So Liam, what can you tell me about Adéwalé? You obviously admire the man.

Liam: Aye. I had the honor of working with him once. I’ve never known anyone who’d done so much for our cause… but it’s much more than that.

Chevalier: Adéwalé was already a légende (legend) before joining the Brotherhood. He was a pirate - the scourge of the West Indies! - rubbing elbows with the likes of Blackbeard, Woodes Rogers and Calico Jack Rackham.

Shay: Calico who?

Chevalier: Oh, read a book, will you?
